Your color choices on projects and designs are so incredible and special. Where does your inspiration come from for colors and design? (We’re huge fans especially of CC-Tapis and Glas Italia (above) collections.)
I don’t believe in trends, I care more about a combination of sensations…the combination of different colors, shapes, and materials unique for each project. The use of color and pattern in my projects is unconventional. For me, color is a great tool, but I think its use depends on the typology of the project. If in its soul, there is color, then the project will be pure color at the end. If the key is the design or the material, then the project can also become colorless.
You have some of the most interesting and beloved design projects—can you single out a few that really mean a lot to you?
I can’t even choose, they are all my babies, and I love them all the same way, even the less lucky.
Tell us about your work with Celebrity Cruises. The space you worked on measures 11,800 square feet. What inspired your design for this ambitious project?
Eden represents the end of a journey, and it's a journey itself through an earthy experience. It's is unique because this experience changes along the paths the guests can find within the venue and according to the time: morning, afternoon, and evening.
The most exciting thing was the challenge to reproduce a land project in a ship. It is the first time for me approaching this kind of project, and like every new project, I discovered a new dimension, and I learned a lot! The truth is that I’m attracted to every possible attainment because experimenting also means making mistakes and trying again.
